Positioned directly along one of Philadelphia's most picturesque cobblestone blocks in the Society Hill neighborhood, this Louis Sauer-designed residence is just a stone~s throw from Headhouse Square. Its interior remains true to its original design but better, having undergone a total renovation by the present owners. Overseen by an architect, the improvements added more natural light, timeless, uniform design elements, custom lighting throughout, a sleek, very complete Bulthaup kitchen,new bathrooms and refinished hardwood floors, among other upgrades. The entry foyer, finished with Basaltina tile, leads to a stairwell that has been re-designed to add more natural light and a touch of drama with strategically placed glass panels. The living room showcases a wood burning fireplace with a custom blackened steel surround. A vaulted ceiling in one portion of the space and sliders add natural light. The sliding doors open to a beautiful green space, a private courtyard-style patio large enough fora grill, Al fresco dining and your favorite chaise lounges. A powder room with glass counter top, infinity mirrors and soft rope lighting, plus a laundry/utility room, complete this level. Upstairs, the Bulthaup/Miele kitchen is as sleek as can be, complete with plenty of cleverly designed runs of aluminum-face cabinetry and a casual dining area topped by a fun "Alizz C. Cooper" Ingo Mauer light fixture. The dining room, with a glass half wall allowing a view down to the living room, is a fun, comfortably scaled space topped with a Swarovski crystal chandelier, a "deconstructed" version of a traditional design. Upstairs are two guest bedrooms, one with a Murphy bed and closets on each side, the other with a wall of closet storage. They share a hall bath finished in honed limestone with a tub/shower with glass wall. Upstairs on the top level is a special reading nook, bright on even the grayest of days, with access to a balcony. Take in winter views of the fireworks at Penn's Landing, or enjoy morning coffee out there on warmer days. The main bedroom suite is on this level and includes a wall of closets as well as hidden built-ins. The bathroom showcases smart design with generous storage, sparkling glass tile and slate floors. A two-person shower with rainfall shower heads and rolling frame less glass doors, exquisite teak wall-mount vanity with double sinks and two medicine cabinets with lighting are just some of the highlights.
